Here are some photos from a recent shoot for Gianna of AcuIntuit as she develops a rebranding of her site. She is a natural in front of the camera. Here are a couple tips for your next photoshoot.

When I get in front of a camera I turn into an awkward goofball. I raise my shoulders, eyebrows and my hands start taking on a life of their own. HA!

Next time you have your photo taken, take a deep breath and poise yourself in a natural, non-posey way. Look right into that lens as if you were looking into another person’s eyes and give them a kind, gentle smile. 

If you have a photoshoot coming up, consider a little cocktail before the shoot! 

Some of my favorite photos of myself were taken when I wasn’t “posing.” Be yourself and your photographer will capture those moments!

  • Great tips! I am uncomfortable in front of the camera too, so I will try your tips next time!

    She is gorgeous, and definitely a natural! ff to check out her website.

    • Thank you, Elisa!! She is doing a full rebrand soon with the new pics. I am so excited to see it! Thank you!!! I love making people comfortable in front of the camera!

  • Jessica

    Those are excellent tips! I love all of the photos above!

    • Thank you very much, Jessica! It is so nice to share them. Thank you for visiting!!! XO

  • I love how soft these shots are… like a very organic version of your subject! I feel like I’m seeing the “real” her. Thanks for the posing tips- I definitely need to work on that ANY time a camera is in front of me. haha. 😉

    • Thank you, Abby! That softness is something I’ve been working on in the editing process. It’s so fun to tinker with! I am still trying to pin down a consistent style. It’s a challenge I am so obsessed with! Thank you!!!
